A Eureka Fellowship Nominee and Applicant








Lots happening this fall:

Recently I received a letter from the Fleishhacker Foundation inviting me to apply for the 2014-2016 Eureka Fellowship for the Visual Arts.  I was one of 118 Bay Area artists nominated from which twelve will be awarded the fellowship, a $25,000 unrestricted grant.  The twelve will be selected in the fall by a panel of noted visual arts experts from outside the Bay Area and awards will be announced in December.   I am honored to have been nominated!

By the time you read this, the exhibit 'Cuttings'  will have closed.  As with most of my shows, I  love  the interesting discussions and interactions I have with those who come and look. I'm  often left with more to ponder.  Thanks to all who attended!  Look for more postings on sections of this exhibit.  And I will be looking for other venues to exhibit this work.  If any of you have any suggestions or leads, please let me know.

And now that the exhibit has closed, I can start work on a project/ collaboration with musician, Jesse Olsen Bay.  In August I met with him about his project, "Makings"; he set music to his grandmother's,  Tillie Olsen's  journals  that she called the 'blueys'.  He has commissioned me to make artwork for the CD cover.
